Very Well done Memorial. What a pleasant surprise well laid out, had something for everyone, the memorial wall, and the side walk bricks were beautiful, a lot of history.

This veterans memorial is done very well and has been expanded on a couple times. Came to find the paver with my brothers name on it. The Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial is a must-see stop in Rochester. (Free) open 24/7 in the park.
